Elstree 1976 (Blu-ray)
by Stuart Galbraith IV
Some years back my friend Stephen Bowie, a television historian, interviewed prolific character actor Jason Wingreen, then about ninety. Wingreen had appeared in hundreds of television shows, including Twilight Zone, Star Trek, and Seinfeld, but was probably most familiar the bartender, a semi-regular role, on All in the Family and its follow-up, Archie Bunker's Place.

She was a unique figure in personality as well as an ally to the LGBTQ+ community for the way she stood by them during the AIDS epidemic through to her passing.The Eyes of Tammy Faye is a biographical drama based on the documentary made by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato. The story explores how Faye's (Jessica Chastain) life led her to co-founding the televangelis...Read the entire review »
